Hurrah! Windfarms produce whopping ONE PER CENT of EU energy

sequester

One bright light in Wolfram Alpha…

"~~ 0.83 × relativistic mass-energy equivalent of 1000 kg of matter ( 1000 kg c^2 )"

So basically if that oil equivalent could be replaced by a mix of all kinds of radiation, all we'd need was some antimatter :-D

GOOGLE GMAIL ATE MY LINUX: Gobbled email enrages Torvalds

sequester

Google Mail is hell to send mail to. I haven't encountered any other receiving system or network that was quite as idiotic.

Return of the disk drive bigness? Not for poor old, busted WD

sequester

So how does HGST fit into the picture, especially when it comes to market share? They're WD too except for some antitrust blinds.

"Great" DVD player?

If the 360 or any MS-related software player are anything to go by, Microsoft's idea of a "great" *-disc player is so far sub-par that my over a decade old standalone DVD player runs cirles around it in every aspect.

AMD's three new low-power chips pose potent challenge to Intel

Re: If it weren't for AMD....

Indeed. As I tend to say, the Core architecture was AMD's best product.

Germany's RTL pulls free-to-air channels off terrestrial TV

sequester
Thumb Up

We call that TV corp "Asocial TV"

Other names are "Unemployment TV" or "Hartz 4 TV" (after unemployment legislation forcing people into poverty).

Those channels exist purely because people love to see that there's always someone at least a thousand times more stupid and asocial than themselves.

All things considered, it's rather a gain to the spectrum.

Re: Poppers.

It's especially amusing since amyl nitrite apparently leads to "relaxation of involuntary muscles, especially […] the anal sphincter".

Source is Wikipedia, so take your pinch of salt with that piece of totally necessary info.
